Tom showed us a great time while taking in the impressive sights of Oxford. I would recommend tom for his hillarious take on oxford's history. We learnt some interesting vocab and were impressed by his 'expensive' accent. The tour is tipped based which I think offers better value for money than the pre-pay tours.

I did the tour almost two weeks ago, and I was really impressed! Tom was a very funny, charismatic fellow who was full knowledge. He was very passionate about the town and the university and their history. Of all the things I did in Oxford I felt this was by far the most worthwhile! Would definitely recommend.

A brilliant way to get an insight into Oxford and its history. We were entertained and educated by Vanessa whose quirky and amusing delivery kept us enthralled despite the cold. The two hours flew by and even the dog (Mws) enjoyed it.

This free two hour walking tour through Oxford was informative and fun, and very non-strenuous. Tom the tour guide does an excellent job and knows how to read his audience, and customise the tour accordingly. Following him around on the tour was like hanging out with an old friend you haven't seen for a while. At the end of the... More

very nice overview of Oxford with an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. The tour is really free. We were happy enough to tip the guide but didn't feel pressured to do so. Overall, it was a great experience.
